Understanding Fleas & Ticks in Florida

Just because you do not immediately see ticks and fleas around your home does not mean they are not there. These may be found in and around your home, but their population numbers are not always high enough for them to be visible. However, all it takes is a particular catalyst – from an extra warm and mild winter to an increase of a rodent population – for these pests to come out of the woodwork. In fact, rodents are one of the highest causes of flea and tick populations' increases, not the mere fact of owning a pet. Many homeowners who experience influxes may not have a pet, but other environmental factors create the tremendous nuisance of fleas and ticks.

Despite the misnomer, since many homeowners again do not own pets, the most common variety of flea that can be found lurking in Tampa is the cat flea, which actually is found on cats, dogs, rats, and other creatures as well. The most common variety of ticks in Tampa are the American dog tick (also found on many other creatures besides dogs), the lone star tick, and the blacklegged tick. For both of these species, the best and sure method of protection is calling an exterminator as soon as you can.
